I’m an established “cat person”, but there’s one question about dogs that I’ve wondered about…
Pit Bulls have a terrible reputation (in both senses of the word). Some people protest that while they are actually nice doggies, they tend to be owned by people who want a real kick-ass pooch (or should that be “bite-ass”?) and thus they tend to be made aggressive by their treatment.
I’ve heard of some towns where it is actually illegal to own a Pit Bull. The law-makers seem to have concluded that the problem is Nature, not Nurture. That is to say, they think that a Pit Bull is just inherently a Bad Dog.
Is it possible that, as a result of inbreeding, Pit Bulls are, in fact, completely wacko?
